NBA Finals MVP winners through the years
Recent winners of the Bill Russell Trophy as NBA Finals MVP.
McClure is a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million, and his golf projection model, which simulates each event 10,000 times, has been red-hot with his picks since the PGA Tour resumed last summer. In fact, his best bets based on the model have brought in more than $10,500 since the June restart, bringing in profits at tournament after tournament.
At the 2021 Open Championship, McClure's best bets included Morikawa winning outright even though he was listed as a massive 40-1 long shot. He was also all over Daniel Berger (+220) and Emiliano Grillo (+700) finishing inside the top 20. McClure's best bets netted over $2,200 at the Open Championship.
In addition, McClure's model was all over Rahm's (10-1) first career major championship victory at the 2021 U.S. Open. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the weekend, but the model still projected him as the winner. And at the 2021 Masters, McClure nailed Rahm's (+250) top-five finish in his best bets, as well as Corey Conners' (+550) top-10 showing.

2020 Tokyo Olympics golf picks for Round 4
One of the model's surprising final-round 2020 Olympics golf picks: It isn't high on Mito Pereira at 22-1 despite entering the final round just two shots off the lead. He stumbles big time and finishes outside the top 10. The Chilean golfer has fired three confident rounds in the 60s and is tied for fifth entering the final round of play, but the 26-year-old doesn't have a lot of experience on a pressure-packed stage like this one.
Pereira has only made one major championship appearance in his career, missing the cut at the 2019 U.S. Open and he's played a total of four PGA Tour events thus far. The former Texas Tech star appears to have a bright future ahead of him, but he's playing above his station thus far, and with tested veterans like Schauffele, Matsuyama, McIlroy and Casey in the mix, Pereira is a fade for the final round.

The opening ceremony is here, and, as you probably have guessed, it’s going to be strange. NBC will broadcast the spectacle live at 7 a.m. ET on Friday.
Another surprise: the model has identified Shane Lowry as a great value at 33-1. He's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. The 2019 Open Championship winner and member of Team Ireland fired a ho-hum 70 in the first round of the tournament but has responded with rounds of 65 and 68 to pull to within four shots of the lead entering the fourth and final round.
Lowry will tee off 33 minutes before the final grouping of Schauffele, Matsuyama and Casey, giving him an interesting opportunity to post a number that will force the leaders to sweat. The 34-year-old is already a five-time winner worldwide and he's got five other top-10 finishes in major championships in addition to being Champion Golfer of the Year in 2019, so he's certainly got the game to run the leaders down.
